Wabco Holdings has entered into a long-term supply agreement with Daimler Trucks North America to supply its Maxxus air disc brake technology for series production on DTNA's trucks starting in July 2012.

Wabco says its Maxxus technology represents the lightest and highest-performing single-piston air disc brake for North America's commercial vehicle industry.Compactly designed, Maxxus reduces the vehicle's overall weight, which boosts fuel efficiency and allows increased payload.

Maxxus air disc brakes are based on Wabco's Maxx22 single-piston technology that the company pioneered in Europe.
